Miss America 2007, Lauren Nelson, and award-winning TV news anchor Robin Marsh share a passion to encourage teen girls. In this relevant, engaging devotional they show the cell phone generation of girls why accepting God’s call is the best decision they’ll ever make.
Each devotion includes a question in teen lingo, God’s “text response” from Scripture, insightful reflections, and a daily spiritual app to help girls relate biblical wisdom to everyday needs as they explore:
how to deal with the drama of other girls
decisions about boys and sexual purity
do’s and don’ts of social media
the fun of living out a bold faith
their identity and uniqueness in Christ
A cleverly presented, timely look at God’s help for the needs young women face today. Perfect for individual faith growth and as group discussion and study material.

In this day and ages of Facebook, Twitter, iPAD, iphones and other electronic devices, it can be increasingly difficult to reach our teens for God. More and more teens are stepping away from church and God, and we, as parents, teachers, and church staff need to find tools that will keep them on fire for God, yet peaks their interest.
God, Girls and Getting Connected is a fantastic devotional that will reach teen girls right where they are. There is a ton of reflection questions and activity's for girls to read and do as they discover truths God, Identity, Relationships and Life (or GIRL, the acronym used in the book). The topics are all relevant and fresh, without being preachy, an appealing method of teaching for sure. This is a superb gift idea for any teen girl in your life, particularly for graduation, which is just around the corner for many.
I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up.
